Abundant and diverse pollinator communities are critical for sustainable crop yields, yet the services provided by pollinators on farms are often jeopardized by stressors such as disease, pesticides, and loss of habitat.

The Northwest Pollinator Initiative assesses pollinator community health, investigates pollination services, and educates local community members to increase pollinator literacy in the Puget Sound Region.

Comprised of local and state-wide stakeholders including dozens of urban gardens and organic farmers, the NWPI uses a research-based, community-driven approach to better understand bees and help conserve these essential organisms.
